The Bryan Museum’s special exhibitions are on display for a limited time. These exhibitions range from select items from the Bryan Museum vault that have been curated for a themed exhibition to traveling exhibitions that are curated from museum partners across the country.

Members of The Bryan Museum are invited to special opening receptions to each of these limited run exhibitions. Members have a chance to view the exhibit before it opens to the public.
